About Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's

Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's is a combination medicine used to treat neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disease that causes nerve pain due to nerve damage or malfunctioning of the nervous system. Symptoms include spontaneous, untriggered pain, unpleasant feeling, shooting, burning or stabbing pain, difficulty resting or sleeping and evoked pain (pain caused by events that are usually not painful). A feeling of numbness and loss of sensations is also common with neuropathic pain.

Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's is a combination of three drugs: Pregabalin (Anti-convulsant), mecobalamin (vitamin) and alpha-lipoic acid (antioxidant). Pregabalin affects the chemicals in the brain that send pain signals across the nervous system. It works by binding to the specific site on voltage-gated calcium channels; this helps in relieving nerve pain. Mecobalamin helps in the rejuvenation and protection of damaged nerve cells by producing a substance called myelin. Alpha-lipoic acid helps in providing a protective effect on the nerve tissues and brain. Together, Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's helps in providing relief from neuropathic pain.

Take Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's with or without food. Swallow Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's as a whole with a glass of water, do not chew or break the tablet. You are advised to take Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as dizziness, sleepiness, tiredness, nausea and vomiting. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.

Please do not stop taking Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's without consulting your doctor as it could cause withdrawal symptoms. Consult your doctor before taking Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's causes drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's should not be given to children as safety and effectiveness have not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with Maxmala 50 Capsule 10's as it could lead to increased dizziness and sleepiness. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and the medicines you take to rule out any side effects.
